On her first album in eight years, Workin' on a World, singer-songwriter Iris DeMent tackles religion, gun control, and the 2016 election. It takes guts to tackle such themes, which can easily come off as cringy and virtue-signaling, but DeMent brings a striking level of sincerity and thoughtfulness to her songs. This is best captured in the protest anthem "Going Down To Texas": "It's been way too long comin' but I want to thank The Chicks / They found out what it's like to be a woman and defy the establishment / Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, any guy in a cowboy hat / Woulda walked away unscathed takin' a stand like that." by Audrey Vann
